right now in this investigation. we have learned a short time ago that the suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now will not face criminal charges until tomorrow. even though massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty, he should face the death penalty under federal law. >> this is just kind of case that it should be applied to. in fact, the only other time it has been used since '94 is on timothy mcbay. given the facts i have seen, it would be appropriate to use the death penalty in this case and i would hope they would apply it in federal court. >> reporter: there is growing evidence today that his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had become incredibly radical. this video of a radical jihadist was posted and then removed from his personal youtube channel. he created it in august shortly after an extended visit to russia. there are increasing questions about how the fbi handled its investigation of tamerlan tsarnaev. they did not follow up after that trip to russia last year. the very latest on the investigation from our crime and justice correspondent, mr. joe johns. joe joins us from washington.
in came edge about, massachusetts, a chechen, apparently. dzhokhar tsarnaev. tell us what you know. >> 19 years old from overseas, been in the u.s. for more than a year. both suspects said to be brothers. as we watch that. i want to make one last point here, if i could, come out live here to our location on boylston street. i want the audience to understand just how easy it would have been for these two people to simply walk away from the scene. runners were coming down eastbound here on boylston street. the explosions are dropped at quarter mile down the street. both bombers are walking west on boylston street. it's an easy thing to duck into gloucester or newberry street or com avenue and then cross the river, which is only a quarter mile away and that takes you to the intersection of vasser and main, which is where police were called in last night at 10:30 p.m. after the report of a robbery at a local convenience station. that's really -- that seems to be the best tip yet that we have gotten, to notify authorities that these guys were in the area and they were the people that the f.b
is expected to be formally charged. we know dzhokhar tsarnaev is still in serious condition but talking to investigators mostly in writing because he's got a bullet wound to the throat. and the boston police commissioner has said he believes there could have been more attacks. >> there were over 200 rounds fired at the scene. they were armed with sidearms and explosive devices. one that has been widely publicized was one of the pressure cooker devices similar to what we saw on boylston street. >> and beyond any immediate threat or the question of motive, there is another question that is key to this investigation. as evidence mounts that the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev took a radical turn, when exactly? what about that six-month trip to dagestan and chechnya. i want to bring in pete williams. good morning once again. i want to start with dzhokhar tsarnaev. do we know specifically beyond serious condition how he's doing and how much talking he's doing? >> well, very little talking because of his throat wound. serious but stable condition is the way they describe it. we have been tol
callum. the authorities were thinking they may not be able to question dzhokhar tsarnaev, suspect in case. there is reports of throat wound, they thought might be self-inflicted after his brother was killed in a shoot without with police. bill: mike tobin leads our coverage back in boston. the latest on that we can report on the investigation is what, mike? good morning there? >> reporter: the latest we can report from this investigation what lead authorities to the brother. that appears to be mountains and mountains of security video. the justice department spoke with our producer mike levine, they looked at security video. this is video not yet been released. don't get confused by what you see on the screen. you see people react to the blast. most people turn in the direction of the blast. the tsnaraev brothers do not. that set up red flags. that got law enforcement zeroing on the two brothers. bill: mike, we're trying to piece this together as best we can but what can you tell us about the reports that the fbi is questioning him today from his hospital bed? >> reporter: all of that goe
is alive, dzhokhar tsarnaev, 19 years old, a resident of cambridge is being sought. his brother was killed last night in the interaction with police, tamerlan tsarnaev who was 26 years old. it all started last night in cambridge. there was a shootout with an officer at m.i.t. on the m.i.t. campus. that officer having been killed last night, found dead in his police cruiser. the suspects then reportedly carjacked an suv, and a chase ensued. at one point they did release the driver unharmed. they went into watertown which is just outside of cambridge, about 10, 15 minutes outside of cambridge and that's where there was a shootout with police. by 1:30 a.m., the first suspect tamerlan tsarnaev was dead and the second suspect was on the loose and being chased. this morning at about 5:00 a.m. police shut down the mbta. they have also now seen the shutdown of amtrak between boston and providence, a major shutdown. ed davis, commissioner of police, says this is a major man hunt. >> overall at this hour we've seen a lot of activity. they have surrounded the home in cambridge of the suspects where b
of massachusetts at dartmouth where the younger tsarnaev was enrolled told nbc's jeff rossen that dzhokhar actually discussed the bombings at the gym the day after they took place. >> i talked to him about normal things going on in the day. i talked to him about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> you said that to him, talked about the bombing? >> yeah. he said it's really sad it's happening, it's a sad thing. it happens around the world, people here aren't used to it. >> reporter: he said it's sad? >> he said it's sad. looked me straight in the eye and said that. >> officials tell nbc federal charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video of the suspect putting his back pac down at the site of the second bombing and then acting very differently from those around him when the first bomb went off. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down. did not react when the first explosion went off. and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> now, bringing charges in federal court would end the contentious debate that's played out over the
-old dzhokhar tsarnaev is under armed guard right now inside a boston hospital in serious but stable condition. he is unable to speak. his capture on friday night from a tarp-covered boat leaving him wounded, and now the feds say an elite interrogation team is waiting to find out everything he knows about the attack. adam is live at both israel hospital. adam, what is the latest? >>reporter: he has been under heavy guard for going on two days. as you mentioned, that elite team has not had the chance to question him. there are a number of reports of his condition. they all vary. what we know, according to the united states attorney and the f.b.i. he is in serious but stable condition. we do know he has multiple gunshot wounds one to the head or neck. we do not know how it came about. we know one injury came from the initial shootout that would kill his brother pronounced dead. he is sedated. that makes sense considering he was under significant surgery after he arrived on friday evening. the injuries are said to be significant especially since he was pleading from bump them at least one, for al
tsarnaev is dead. suspect number two, dzhokhar tsnaraev, his younger brother, age 19, still unaccounted for. jennifer griffin is live with our national security view on this from our bureau in washington, d.c. we're told they have ties to chechnya. that they could be russian- born but chechnya according to their ethnicity. they spent some time there at least at a younger age, jennifer. what more do we have on that? >> reporter: that is really interesting. when i heard of the name of the younger one, the one with the white cap who is still on the loose, the name dzhokar was very familiar to me. the dzhokar dudivey first president of chechnya was killed. had a violent death by the russians when he used his satellite phone, two missiles came out of the sky and killed him. i remember being in lebanon at the time and remember when he was killed, he was killed in chechnya on april 21st, which of course is coming up this weekend, this sunday. that made me think if these two are chechen nationalists in some way, dzhokar dudiav, dzhokhar tsnaraev accused of planting the boston marathon bomb, that is
bombs at the boston marathon. the brother dzhokhar tsarnaev and we will learn more and in the weeks ahead and learn the story of alienation, and brutal murder. were these men an unusual case, loners, or are they part of something larger? how and when did they turn? and in one important sense, however, this was text book terrorism. the plan was to frighten us. terrorism is an unusual tactic in that it depends for its success on the response of the onlooker. that's why people have often said about terrorists they want a few people dead and a lot of people watching. if we who watch are not terrorized, then almost by definition it didn't work. on that count, how did we do? pretty well. the people of boston handled the crisis with calm and determination. the authorities did shut down most of the city on friday for the manhunt. a decision that could be debated, but the people of boston stayed steady and are already getting back to normal. i spent seven years living in boston and i was struck by the city and the people's strength of character. they have a tough new england spirit. a that c
purchased, about the video surveillance that led them to dzhokhar tsarnaev, and the purpose is to show the evidence that they have against this guy, and they're going to lay some, but not all, of that out in the fbi affidavit. >> mike, precisely, specifically, what is he likely to be charged with? >> reporter: well, it's going to be terrorism-relatinged charges, and that could include a charge for use of weapons of mass destruction. the ied bombs will be, can fit under that section of the federal code, and that -- that and these other charges could -- would lead to the death penalty, if convicted. doesn't mean that the federal government will seek the death penalty, but these charges could result in the death penalty. we won't know whether the justice department is seeking the death penalty from this criminal complaint charge today. that will come much later. >> let's talk about the wound to the throat we're starting to hear about. that apparently has prevented him from being able to speak. how are interrogators going to get around this? just a simple, they ask questions and he writes
that ended with a surprisingly subdued ending on friday night. 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was pronounced dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals
